Excerpt: Bought this juicer less than 2 weeks ago and it conked out on me after 8 days of use. I was very disappointed as it was very easy to use and did the job well. I have returned it and purchased the same model. I do hope this one doesn't do the same.

Summary: We bought this juicer to replace the Philips HR1861. It was a little pricey, but we thought since we've been juicing for a couple of years now, we should upgrade to the newer model. The first Avance we had for about a couple of months. Then the motor stopped working and kept starting and stopping.
Summary: UPDATE 31/May/2014 I had to replace the unit again but this time after 32 days of use, so I used it maybe 50 times max, the motor blew out and this time smoked out pretty bad, before I could switch it off from the mains it tripped my consumer box. I use the machine at least once a day, maybe twice.
